About this title


A collection of essays offers reflections on and observations of life, including "On Being a Man of Litter and Letters," "Marbles on the Window Ledge," and others.

From Library Journal:

For readers who are willing to admit frankly that they'd like a little respite from the extravagance and absurdity of much modern literature, this book will be welcome. Kidder has unearthed from their entombment in the back issues of the Christian Science Monitor 35 of his choicest contributions to the "Home Forum" pages. The core of his inspiration lies in New England and the Maritime provinces. Whether he is writing about his summer cottage on a Canadian lake, rereading Pogo at the Boston Public Library, or remembering his Latin teacher in Amherst, Massachusetts, Kidder is a delightful raconteur. He has what might be called the faculty of agreeable chatter. Anyone who enjoys the relaxed and ruminative art of the familiar essay should enjoy this book, but those with roots in the area should find in it an emotional appeal as well.
